MEXICO — Oxford Federal Credit Union (OFCU) is pleased to announce once again a partnership with local JMG programs for the 2023/24 school year.

“Financial education is extremely important to us as an organization, and this partnership raises our level of commitment to making it available,” said Lisa Marston, OFCU’s marketing Ddirector. “We are excited to offer JMG students the tools and support they need as they prepare for life beyond high school.”

As a financial education partner of JMG, OFCU is making a $3,000 contribution to the program and will provide financial education and resources to students, collaborate with them on community/social awareness projects, and award scholarships to graduating seniors. This year, the JMG program at Spruce Mountain High School in Jay will be included in the partnership along with the programs at Dirigo High School, Mountain Valley High School, and Telstar High School.

Marston shared, “We spent a lot of time in classrooms last school year presenting to the students and truly enjoyed interacting with them. Everyone associated with JMG is dedicated and supportive, and we are happy to work with them again.”

“Empowering the next generation with financial literacy is not just a responsibility, but a commitment to their future success. Our renewed partnership with Oxford Federal Credit Union reaffirms our dedication to equipping students with the tools and knowledge they need to navigate the complexities of financial literacy.

“By continuing this partnership, we’re not only shaping better financial decision-makers but also cultivating a stronger, more resilient community,” said Craig Larrabee, president and CEO of JMG. JMG partners with public education and private businesses to offer results-driven solutions to ensure all Maine students graduate, attain post-secondary credentials, and pursue meaningful careers.
